Developing Ethical Leaders

Developing Ethical Leaders

One fundamental leadership responsibility is setting and maintaining an ethical climate. Failure to do so is prevalent in both the private, and public sectors and the consequences can be devastating.

Too many companies fail to prevent ethical disasters before they happen. You can make a difference by empowering employees and leaders at all levels!
Can you afford not to?

There are three key levels of awareness to help identify and prevent unethical behavior in your organization:
Ethical Awareness - Individual & Situational Awareness - and System Awareness.

This course helps participants to:
- Develop ethical people and organizational leaders.
- Examine connections between morality, ethics, integrity and character.
- Understand the dominant approaches to moral decision-making.
- Understand the difference between ethical dilemmas and moral temptations.
- Recognized the roll of moral courage.
- Understand the human, and situational factors that influence why good people sometimes make bad moral decisions.
- Examine how leaders can utilize “the system” to impact the moral reasoning and actions of those in the organization.
- Think through what it means to set, and maintain an ethical climate in the face of multiple, sometimes competing mission objectives.
- Understand moral muscle memory, and the need to develop ethical leaders at all levels in an organization.

"By far, the best Ethics course I have ever had. I realize now how believing I'm not vulnerable, makes me even more vulnerable (the leaders trap). This class really helped me see a dimension of human behavior, through the lens of ethics and leadership, that I had never quite pieced together before. A real eye-opening course!"
